Whilst enjoying your day out at Weston, this quiet little corner of our world is worth a visit if you have an eye for artistic creations. Originally built in 1767, the Art Gallery was unused for many years before becoming the subject of a total and most sympathetic restoration, thanks to support from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Now set beneath a splendidly characterful old beamed roof, you’ll find the Art Gallery in the building that houses the Granary Grill & Deli, and here you’ll discover monthly selling exhibitions by acclaimed artists from the UK and beyond, along with items on loan to the gallery from private collections. The exhibitions in the Granary Art Gallery are organised by Weston Park’s Curatorial & Learning Department. The Gallery is also available to hire for Group and Solo shows. Visitors to the gallery can enjoy a coffee and homemade cake in the Granary Deli or lunch in the Grill.
Royal Birmingham Society of Artists
Weston Park has, on several occasions, welcomed artists from the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists to exhibit in the Granary Art Gallery. We are therefore thrilled that the society itself is bringing it’s own exhibition in which its member artists are considering the Capability Brown legacy.
Formed in 1821, the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists is one of the oldest of British art societies. It is an artist-led charity that supports artists and promotes engagement with the visual arts through a range of inclusive activities; exhibitions, workshops and demonstrations. The Society owns and runs its own exhibition venue, the RBSA Gallery, located just off St Paul’s Square, near Birmingham’s historic jewellery quarter and a short walk from the city centre.
